In March, Judy Wajcman, Professor of Sociology at the London School of Economics and Political Science, streamed a lecture on automation and robotics at the Oxford Martin School (University of Oxford) via the 21school channel on YouTube. She talks about a few very interesting aspects of the “Could vs Should” in technology and science fields. I found her takes on how invention and design reflects the shape of a society truly fascinating. Clearly you need to remember it’s not all black-and-white, but there’s a lot of intriguing ideas heres. Interested in the future, in science, technology, design or other forms of innovation? This video will be very interesting for you, enjoy!
